UPDATE: Looks like the web app's now been pushed back to Thursday, September 21.
According to the official Electronic Arts website, we're just over a week away from the FIFA 18 Web App launching.
September 15 – FUT 17 Web App goes offline.
September 20 – FUT 18 Web App comes online. If you’re eligible, this is when you can start using the Transfer Market.
September 21 – New Companion App launches. This is your chance to update your Companion App for FIFA 18 on Android and iOS.
Early access to the Web and Companion Transfer Market ends at 12:00 a.m. GMT on October 9. After that, you’ll need to log in to FUT 18 on your console or PC at least once to continue using both apps.
While this schedule hasn't been announced through an social media accounts, it's clearly stated on the website with the FIFA 17 Web App slated to go offline on Friday. Five days later on Wednesday, September 20 is when the new Web App is set to be released. Also on the day, the EA Access trial is set to begin for FIFA 18. This makes sense with Squad Building Challenges available to be completed in the actual app this year. A day later, the companion app will apparently be updated and ready for FIFA 18.
You must have created a FUT Club before August 1, 2017, to get early access to the FUT 18 Web and Companion apps.
Your FUT 17 account must still exist.
Your account needs to be in good standing. If you were banned or had other actions taken on your account in FUT 17, you won’t get early access.
Now that it appears to be official, what are your plans for the launch of FUT 18? Will you be trading first or building your starter squad? Let us know in the comments.
